Rome, June 3 - The government is set to unveil tax
breaks for firms that give young people steady jobs amid
recession-hit Italy's worsening youth-unemployment crisis,
Industry Minister Flavio Zanonato said Monday.
Unemployment among 15-to-24-year-olds hit a 36-year high of
41.9% in the first quarter of 2013.
Italy also has Europe's highest proportion of young people
doing "nothing", with almost a third of 15-to-29-year-olds not
in education, employment or training (NEET).
"We have 2.5 million youngsters who are not working and not
studying, or have given up on trying to find a job," Zanonato
said, announcing the incentives for businesses who hire young
people long-term.
Premier Enrico Letta on Friday vowed to have a national
action plan against youth unemployment in place before the issue
is addressed at June's summit of European Union leaders.
